What a hassle but I was bound and determined and got it to work. Here's how. 

Firstly, When you install the driver and it won't open, Follow the directions carefully:

Note: if the file fails to launch, Right-click it and select Open to launch the installer, as well make sure it is not blocked under System Preferences > Security & Privacy and then launch it again:

 

However, My printer now had a driver but remained in IDLE mode. So off I went in search of an answer to that. See above and follow step by step. 

I Deleted the printer I just added ( I know it seems counter intuitive) and then clicked on the + sign and re add it to your list. 

 

I followed these instructions. https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Mobile-Printing-Cloud-Printing/My-printer-won-t-print-and-stays-on-idl...

 

Taa Daaa, it works! 

Good luck!
